Page 15 of the 1.4 rules states that "Unequipped Heroes cannot attack."

What is the definition of an unequipped hero? Does this mean a hero who does not have a weapon? (I doubt it.)

But what is the definition of "unequipped?"

Really? Ok thank you.

But that means an elf wizard without a weapon cannot make a magic attack?

A militia without a weapon cannot make a normal attack?

I'm just wanting to make absolutely sure is why I am asking again.

It means that ANY hero without a weapon may not attack. So yes, neither of those heroes may attack....

The text you are referring to (page 15) does not refer to ALL attacks, JUST attacks on monsters with Traits that specifically say "Unequipped Heroes cannot attack". (If you turn back tp age 14, you'll see the heading for the section.) Other traits include immunity to edged weapons, light penalties, etc. These do not apply to ALL monsters, just those that say so on that specific card.

Hope this helps.

Very much so. That was the reason for my confusion.

Hehe...it is referenced that this only applies to monsters with that specific trait. Sorry, thought you understood that.

Thank goodness for that. Thought we'd been playing completely wrong for a moment there!

Yes my first read through on the 1.4 rules had me confused too until I remembered that this is a trait on certain monsters and is only applicable when that monster is a target of a battle, and not a rule that is always in effect.
